2014 Project Mañana Christmas Party

VIDEO: Project Mañana Christmas Party (2014)
Each year Project Mañana throws a Christmas party for all children in the program. This year’s party was the biggest one yet -- and the children had an absolute blast!

The party started off with a clown, yes a clown, that played games, danced, and sang songs with the children. A clown might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think "Christmas Party", but here in the Dominican Republic we do things a little different. Bombillin the Clown was very entertaining and raised the roof on our Nutrition Center for over an hour.

Next the children received a special meal followed by an apple, which is a huge Christmas-time treat in the Dominican Republic. And to conclude the party, each child received a gift that had been bought and shipped to the Dominican Republic by a few extremely generous supporters. For many, this is the only Christmas gift they will receive this year.

While the clown, the meal, the treats, and the presents were all great, this party was so much more than that. For several hours on this day, these children were THE focus. The same children that on any other day are left to feed, clothe, and entertain themselves while their parents go out to try to earn enough money to feed their family. The same children that are exposed to things on a daily basis that no child should see or live. This day, if only for a few hours, they were just children having fun without a care in the world. To see a glimpse of the day check out the video on YouTube.
Project Mañana Hosts Medical Clinic For 300 People
Medical Clinic
People lined up to be seen at the medical clinic
On December 14th, Project Mañana teamed up with ADVETNOR1 & MELIVEA2 to provide medical services for the people in San Pablo, Villa González.

During this all-day event, more than 300 people came through the doors of the Nutrition Center for check-ups, flu shots, vaccines, breathing treatments, counseling, and more.

The crowd of people needing care was a bit overwhelming, but by the grace of God everyone that showed up was seen by the doctors. There are so many needs in the community and it was great to see many of the physical needs met on this day.

This was our first clinic with friends from MELIVEA & ADVETNOR, but it will not be our last. Their professionalism and organized way of operating is top notch. They also brought toys for the children; which helped to get rid of those tears caused by their vaccine shots.

Project Mañana Hosts First Annual Women's Conference
Womens Conference Attendees
30 Dominicans & 8 Americans attended the conference
This past week, Project Mañana held its first annual Women’s Conference in Villa González, Dominican Republic.

A team of eight women from the United States partnered with our Dominican staff to teach the ladies how to be a Godly woman, wife, and mother.

Leading up to the conference, ladies in both countries spent time studying Captivated by Stasi Elderidge and then came together to discuss key points in greater detail.

They laughed together, cried together and built amazing bonds that will last a lifetime.

The conference ended with a celebration of the ladies and their husbands that included hors d'oeuvres and an opportunity for everyone to share what they learned.

It was an amazing experience to see ladies from different countries, different cultures, different languages, and different lives come together and realize they share the same joys and struggles of being a woman.

Please pray for the women of Villa González and the United States that they will remember and put into practice everything they learned together. Also pray for Project Mañana's Women's Ministry as it continues to invest in the local women.
Phase 2 of the Hope Center Building Project is Funded!
Phase 3: Hope Center Building Project

On November 24th, we kicked off Phase 2 of a campaign to raise $10,000 in 30 days for the new Project Mañana Hope Center.

We are pleased to announce that this campaign was successful and we were able to reach the $10,000 goal thanks to your generous giving.

This puts us one step closer to completing the Hope Center building project; which will offer more space to provide a nutritious meal and clean water to the hundreds of children in San Pablo that still need our help.

While completing Phase 2 is extremely exciting and a huge accomplishment, we must keep moving.

Phase 3 is now underway and our next goal is $20,000 in 60 days (by February 28, 2015). Get the word out to your family and friends and let’s put Phase 3 behind us also.

We need YOUR help to provide hundreds of starving children with a nutritious meal and clean water.

Please Donate Today!

The total project cost is estimated at $150,000 US and construction can immediately begin when we reach the milestone of $75,000 US.

The faster we're able to raise the money, the sooner we can extend aide to children who desperate need it.

PLEASE DONATE TODAY: 100% of your tax-deductible donation will be allocated directly to the Hope Center building fund. Project Mañana does not take ANY administrative fees from your donation and we NEVER use your donation for anything besides the project in which it was intended.

Project Mañana Needs Your Help!
Project Mañana is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to sharing the gospel and break the cycle of poverty by investing in impoverished children, their families and communities through clean water, nutrition, education, and discipling projects.

We achieve our goals through charitable donations and child sponsorship, which unites children in need with individual sponsors who wish to address the children's immediate and basic needs. Sponsorship gives poor children the tools and opportunities necessary for success by providing benefits and supporting programs for each child - primarily in the areas of education and nutrition.
